Things you thought you would never say but do as a cyclist

That’s a bargain! Some people pay $12k for a bike, so getting a bike for $4k is basically saving $8k! Can’t afford NOT to buy it!

These hit home for me.

  • trying on a new jersey, wife says it looks a bit small, and I’m thinking I should have gone a size smaller, you know, for More Aero
  • Being in a crouch and standing up and getting very light-headed and having to hold onto something. Glad to hear I’m not the only one.
  • Going to the pool and showing off my crisp tan lines… hell yeh.
  • Yup, have my special socks that I only wear when I need to go extra fast and need strong legs.

Bonking is to be avoided at all costs. It makes you feel sick and dizzy.

I bought some for some road rash a few months ago. My wife got a new tattoo and was suprised I had a secret stash of tegaderm :rofl:

Gasoline is a really cheap form of energy
(after calculating that I could bike across the US on 3-4 gallons of it, if it wasn’t toxic and such)
